Indow Windows was among the winners of the Pacific Northwest regional finals for the Cleantech Open.
The Pacific Northwest regional Cleantech Open competition this week advanced three startups to the national round, which takes place next week.
According to the blog SeattlePI.com, Portland-based Indow Windows and Gresham-based HM3 Energy will join GridMobility, a Redmond, Wash., company in representing the Northwest at the Cleantech Open competition in San Jose Nov. 15-16.
The Cleantech Open is a program for clean energy-related startups that offers mentoring and runs a competition for venture capital. Last year an Oregon company, Beaverton water purification startup Puralytics, took the top prize.
The finalists for this year's round were announced in June.
Indow Windows, which makes window inserts to improve energy efficiency in older homes, was also named the Northwest region's "Sustainability prizewinner" and could take the national sustainability award next month.
HM3 Energy is developing technology to turn biomass into briquettes that can be used in place of coal in power plants.
GridMobility is a software company with technology that allows power users to shift their electricity use to times when energy is less costly.
